Germany?s top four ADR performers

LONDON?Average room rate performance for Germany?s cities so far this year varies dramatically according to data from STR Global, the leading provider of market information to the world?s hotel industry. Of the 17 city markets in the Federal Republic covered by STR Global, only four show positive, albeit modest, year-on-year ADR growth for the first four months this year: Rostock, Leipzig, Cologne and Dortmund. (See chart below.) Rostock leads the way with a 3.3-percent increase.

In this difficult trading environment this is commendable, especially when compared with the problems faced by D?sseldorf and Essen. These two neighbouring cities have ADR declines of 23.6 percent and 9.6 percent, respectively. A large portion of the problems experienced by D?sseldorf reflects the fact that early 2008 was a good trade fair year for the city with two trade fairs, in February and April, which only occur every three years. This impacted Essen to a lesser degree. 

Key facts (January to April 2009):

  • Hamburg achieved the highest occupancy (65.1 percent), keeping its top spot from last year despite a 3.4-percent decline.
  • All cities reported occupancy declines.
  • Frankfurt achieved the highest ADR (?117.17), keeping its top spot from last year despite a 7.4-percent decline.
  • Only four cities grew their ADR: Rostock, Leipzig, Cologne and Dortmund.
  • Frankfurt?s high ADR helped the city achieve the highest RevPAR (?66.23), keeping its top spot despite a 16.9-percent decline
  • Only Rostock grew its RevPAR through the increase in ADR and only a slight drop in occupancy.
